I was out on some ground for a bit of vermin control a few weeks ago (which I unfortunately donít have deer permission on) and stalked into a pair of Roe grazing in a field.
I decided to see how close I could stalk into them through a wood and managed to get within 25 -30 yds yards of them.
I stood for ages just watching and observing them go about their business when I got a right hellish cold shiver and what seemed like something brushing over my neck
Upon looking round to see what happened I found the source of my terror was a Tawny Owl that flew round me and landed on a fence post directly to my right.
What a bloody fright I got, absolutely silent but have to admit it was cracking to see.
Hope Iíve uploaded the quick video correctly & please excuse the quality (off my mobile) but thought Iíd share it anyway.
I'm having a bit of trouble with photobucket on the work computer/server so if it doesn't play please let me know
